George Disaster Services urges all members of the public (cyclists/hikers/runners/walkers) to stay away from pine plantations and forested areas in and around George until further notice. The extreme weather conditions – high winds and heavy rains – have led to a high number of trees falling.
In some instances fallen trees are lying across upright trees and the wind storms are causing branches to break etc. Falling branches, mud, etc have made areas dangerous and no-go zones. Further rainfall is expected later today.
